Sorry there's confusion about this-- we could have been more clear in the original messaging.

Even if you have an existing "old" style PBE account, you should still create another "new" style account if you've been approved. We announced that we'll be deactivating the "old" accounts (though obviously we haven't yet).

I know it can be inconvenient (especially if you're going to buy everything in the store again) but once you have your "new" account, it will be used even for future test cycles-- you won't have to do this every time. The main reason we want everyone to have the "new" account is that behind the scenes, the new account creation process provides us a lot of additional helpful data for testing.


Right now my "old" PBE account has the name I would like to have on my "new" PBE account. Is there anyway to get the old names purged?

This. Especially sine buying runes/rune pages all over again is annoying as hell.

Presumably this will happen when they deactivate the old ones.

And then you use some of the copious RP/IP stipend to change it... (or they'll set change to 1 RP briefly or something)

I believe someone already mentioned it earlier but you can, while still active, go into your "old" pbe account and purchase a summoner name change. Then go to your "new" pbe account and you can use the old account name you had on your "old" account.
